  • Re-thinking applications in the edge computing era The EU GDPR directive was a cornerstone in Information Society. More or less, it states that the ownership of data is an inalienable right of the data producer; before GDPR the data ownership was something marketable. Now, to use some else data, you need always get permissions that can be revoked anytime. Beside this, IoT requires more and more local data processing driving the edge computing paradigm.Recent specifications like SOLID and IPFS promise radical but practical solutions to move toward a real data distribution paradigm, trying to restore the original objective of the web:  knowledge sharing. This view, where each person/machine has full control of his data, contrasts with the centralized application data architecture used by the majority ...

  • New KEES specifications In order to let computers to work for us, they must understand data: not just the grammar and the syntax, but the real meaning of things.KEES (Knowledge Exchange Engine Service) proposes some specifications to describe a domain knowledge in order to make it tradeable and shareable.KEES allows to formalize and license:how to collect the right data,how much you can trust in your data,what new information you can deduct from the collected data,how to answer specific questions using dataA.I. and humans can use these know hows to reuse and enrich existing knowledge. KEES is a Semantic Web Application.

  • Released µSilex µSilex (aka micro Silex) is a micro framework inspired by Pimple and PSR standards. All with less than 100 lines of code!µSilex is a try to build a standard middleware framework for developing micro-services and APIs endpoints that require maximum performances with a minimum of memory footprint.Middleware is now a very popular topic in the developer community, The idea behind it is “wrapping” your application logic with additional request processing logic, and then chaining as much of those wrappers as you like. So when your server receives a request, it would be first processed by your middlewares, and then after you generate a response it will also be processed by the same set:It may sound complicated ...

  • Metaphors, Models, and Theories Because most  software developers are not familiar with using “formal theories” it is worth explaining what a theory is. In his book, “Models. Behaving. Badly.”,  Emanual Derman explains the differences between metaphors, models, and theories.A metaphor describes something less understandable by relating it to something more understandable.A model is a specimen that exemplifies the ideal qualities of something. Models tend to simplify. There tend to always be gaps between models and reality. Models are analogies; they tend to describe one thing relative to something else. Models need a defense or an explanation.A theory describes absolutes. Theories are the real thing. A theory describes the object of its focus. A theory does not simplify. Theories are irreducible, the ...

  • Linked Data in Robotics and Industry 4.0 Industry 4.0 is a collective term (created in Germany) for the technological concepts of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Services, leading to the vision of the Smart Factory. Within a modular structured Smart Factory, cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, and make decentralized decisions. Over the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and humans in real time. In addition, one of the aims in robotics is to build smarter robots that can communicate, collaborate and operate more naturally and safely. Increasing a robot’s knowledge and intelligence is a vital for the successful implementation of Industry 4.0, since traditional approaches are not flexible enough to respond ...

  • It's time for ethics in artificial intelligence programming? Much attention has rightfully been given about how to the AI industry might transmit existing negative biases into the myriad of artificially intelligent systems that are now being built.Bias typically arrives along with real world data; as long as our society exhibits negative biases, we’ll see these reflected in the data we collect. Eliminate such bias from the dataset is unrealistic.There is another option. Today we can build AI that reinforces positive attributes a reality through programmatic product design choices, it isn't easy, but it is possible. This means introducing ethics in programming. Should be this desirable? Who will decide?Food for thought.See the article by  Matthew Hutson "Even artificial intelligence can acquire biases against ...

  • The resourceful experiment Resourceful is a simple framework designed for rapid prototyping REST/HTTP applications that are mostly CRUD operations. It is driven off of JSON Hyper-Schemas. You use Hyper-Schemas to define your resources and their relationships with each other. No coding other than writing Hyper-Schemas and registering new resources is required. You only need to worry about your API and not its implementation. Proper HTTP response codes and headers are managed automatically.This PHP package is released with Open Source MIT license and it is available in GIT hub.The project objective is to demonstrate the power of best sw engineering practices: full hypermedia RESTfull API architecturethe  dependency elimination principlefull adoption of the  dependency inversion design pattern ...
